    Resurrecting this thread to ask what document control systems are being used out there?  I would love to scan in many items to store electronically (i.e. temperature charts, etc.). Are people scanning to a facilities specific drive or something else?    We use MediaLab for policies and competency assessments.

    We use MediaLab also and scan the package inserts in a job aids.  You can revise them the same as you can your policies.

  2. We have had HFAP until they were purchased by ACHC, and both of those have cited me for the lack of correlations:  one for not performing them at all, although I pointed out that we do that on every specimen without previous records, and just last year because I didn't include crossmatch tests with my Type and Screen correlations.  I contested the citation again, stating that it was the exact same methodology as the antibody screen, but was unsuccessful as their standards say "the same test using different methodologies ".  I gave up and added XM as well.  No concept of what we do and no common sense! :wacko:

    I am not sure I understand your question. 

    If the mother had an admission type and screen and was rh negative, then all that would be required post-delivery is the fetal bleed screen. Why would you want to repeat and antibody screen post delivery?

    We do the same as Jayinsat.

  4. We are in the process of remodeling our Lab to accommodate an automation line and need to replace our decades-old lab benches and storage.  Has anyone done this recently that can give me recommendations on suppliers?  I should mention that we are in the US.

    While I understand the convenience of making MTPs and emergency release a paperless process. I regard the physical signature a good reminder that issuing uncrossmatched blood must not be taken lightly. 

    We scan the form to the EMR and the physician signs it electronically.  We recently had a physician who refused to sign the uncrossmatched form when the patient first started hemorrhaging but then called an MTP.  Of course, the MTP was discontinued a few minutes later and he sent back everything except 4 RCs and a platelet.  No idea what he was thinking, but he did sign the form.   <_<
